A time Show begins Thursday at Atlanta between Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals.
This is their chance at doing it against the team they are wanting to catch if the Nationals would like to play catch up in the NL East. It’s still not likely to be easy when they sweep the Braves.
They are seven games behind going so the Nationals are still in a position that is challenging, regardless of what happens this weekend. At least when it comes to the NL East. The Nationals look ready to host a Wild Card Game at the moment.
The Nats are three games up on the Cubs. Along with a cause the Cubs, they’ve a advantage over the Phillies for a wildcard. When the Nationals overlook completely, it’d be an epic meltdown, but I don’t see that occurring. They are certainly a much better team than promoted or getting credit for. However, I’d be taking them seriously or risk heading home in October if I need to play with with Washington in the postseason.
And the same is true for the Braves. They aren’t a team. To put it differently, I simply don’t see the Dodgers having a simple time cruising to the World Series. Braves and the Nationals would both give a significant battle to them.
Stephen Strasburg would not be the man I’d love to see within an club. Strasburg will be scheduled for the nod. He is expected to maintain against Max Fried of the Braves. Head below for our free Nationals vs. Braves select and the rest of the writeup below.

The Nationals look like a fantastic bet to play in the postseason, although the Phillies and Bryce Harper have been in dire straits. It could be worse, but they’ve been stationary at around three matches back for a little while. They’ve neglected to draw closer last night following the Reds knocked off them .
The Phillies erased a 5-0 deficit, but slid straight back yielding 3 unanswered runs to complete the match. Washington so are now winners in six of the past eight games and are on track. They are coming from against the Mets, however. This was Tuesday, after winning in spectacular fashion night. The Nationals hauled back for seven runs in the frame to win and were down 10-4 in the 9th. Yesterday was the letdown place for them, as they hope that the hangover does not carryover into this weekend.
Strasburg can do his very best to prevent it. Atlanta input a winning series. Strasburg was hot as well, nevertheless. He’s been on fire at his latest outings, as he goes into SunTrust Park with the ERA of 0.86 and 0.62 WHIP in his last few starts. The Braves have gotten so they have scored in the past against him. In his final trip to Atlanta, he surrendered 8 hits and 3 earned runs in 5.1 innings.
While Strasburg has been around fire, Fried was struggling with a 6.19 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in his past three outings. Fried will likely soon be home at SunTrust Park where he has been a hurler. He has posted a 3.74 ERA and also 1.27 WHIP in Atlanta, while Strasburg has functioned to get a 3.59 ERA at 95.1 innings in the road. Even the Braves as a group have excelled at home, with a record of 42-27 on the season. Oddly, the Nats have been average in. Getting the Braves at home since underdogs is obviously likely to be great price.
